Stefon Diggs Quiet In Sunday's Win

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs (hamstring) had a low-key game on Sunday, catching both of his targets for 37 yards in the 28-12 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Quarterback Kirk Cousins only threw 10 times for 98 passing yards, so Diggs' lack of production was more a result of the Vikes commitment to the run... Read More

Adam Thielen Notches Touchdown In Victory

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen led the receiving corps on Sunday, snagging all three of his targets for 43 yards and the team's only receiving touchdown. Thielen managed to come away from this game with a usable fantasy line despite quarterback Kirk Cousins passing for only 98 yards, which has to be considered a... Read More

Kirk Cousins Posts Modest Line In Win

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins was 8-for-10 passing for 98 yards and a touchdown on Sunday, adding six carries for four yards and a rushing touchdown. Cousins was not required to throw much - the Vikings got out to an early lead and Dalvin Cook mostly took over from there. However, the 10 passing attempts... Read More

Minnesota Vikings Defense Not In Great Week 1 Spot

The Minnesota Vikings Defense have a tough task ahead of them as they take on the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1's tilt. The Falcons, who ranked sixth in yards-per-game and 10th in points-per-game in 2018, have a dangerous offense featuring Matt Ryan, Julio Jones, Calvin Ridley, and a healthy Devonta Freeman. The Vikings have an... Read More

Kyle Rudolph Not A Recommended Option In Week 1

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph is not a recommended play against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1's contest. The Falcons, despite being susceptible to the pass, only allowed six tight ends to eclipse 9.8 points in 2018. Rudolph remains the Vikings starting tight end, but rookie Irv Smith Jr. looms as a receiving threat... Read More

Adam Thielen A Low-End WR1 Against Falcons

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Adam Thielen tied the NFL record for consecutive 100-yard receiving games in 2018, and he'll look to get off to a hot start on Sunday afternoon against the Falcons. Though the Vikings may be looking to feature a more balanced offense this year, Thielen is a great candidate for 8-10 targets... Read More

Dalvin Cook A Top-Tier RB1 Against Falcons

Minnesota Vikings running back Dalvin Cook is primed for a big game to start the season, squaring off against an Atlanta Falcons Defense that got absolutely crushed by running backs in 2018. The Falcons allowed 10 top-10 finishes by running backs last year, and have been notorious for allowing tons of receiving yardage to the... Read More

Stefon Diggs Misses Practice On Wednesday

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Stefon Diggs (hamstring) was held out of practice on Wednesday, according to ESPN's Courtney Cronin. Head coach Mike Zimmer said he anticipated he'd play on Sunday, but this is a situation to monitor closely leading up to game day. Diggs, assuming full health, is an upside WR2-play against an Atlanta Falcons... Read More

Dan Bailey A Decent Option In Week 1

Minnesota Vikings kicker Dan Bailey survived the Kaare Vedvik experiment and remains the team's starter at the position. Bailey had a shaky 2018 season with the Vikes, hitting just 5-of-11 field goals from 40 yards or more and registering a subpar 75% field goal percentage. His career average is 86.6%, but Bailey has been statistically... Read More

Kirk Cousins Worth A Look As Week 1 Streamer

Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins could be a sneaky play in Week 1, squaring off at home against an Atlanta Falcons Defense that was obliterated in 2018. The Falcons defense finished 27th in passing yards allowed per game, which translated to them being the fourth most-favorable matchup for opposing fantasy quarterbacks. They return a few...

Jordan Taylor Released By Vikings

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Jordan Taylor reportedly had the inside track for the third receiver role during organized team activities back in May, but he didn't show much of anything during the preseason and was released on Tuesday. As it stands, Chad Beebe, Olabisi Johnson and Brandon Zylstra appear to be the preferred options at wide... Read More

Laquon Treadwell A Non-Factor In Victory

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Laquon Treadwell didn't improve his chances at securing a roster spot on Saturday, failing to catch his only target in a 20-9 win over the Arizona Cardinals. Treadwell was "showcased" in the previous preseason game, but he failed to make any type of impact in what was a poor showing for... Read More

Chad Beebe Quiet In Third Preseason Game

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Chad Beebe was held without a catch on Saturday despite seeing three targets. All indications are still pointing toward Beebe being the lead dog for the Vikings third receiver spot, though Olabisi Johnson, Jordan Taylor, and Brandon Zylstra remain in the mix with one preseason game left to play. It could... Read More

Kyle Rudolph Held Without Catch

Minnesota Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph had a quiet game on Saturday, failing to haul in a catch and registering just one target in the contest.

Mike Boone The Preseason Rushing Leader After Three Weeks

Minnesota Vikings running back Mike Boone is doing everything he possibly can to earn a spot on the 53-man roster, and his performance on Saturday against the Cardinals definitely helped his cause.

Linval Joseph A Full Participant At Practice

Minnesota Vikings run-stuffing defensive tackle Linval Joseph was a full participant in practice on Tuesday, his first full practice since recovering from offseason surgery.

Chad Beebe Has One Catch In Victory

Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Chad Beebe caught one of two targets for seven yards in Sunday's win over the Seattle Seahawks.
